Does not initialize - Device I/O Error Master 9/28/2020 12:45:02 PM

Pros: Lots of space, if it doesn't get lost due to a device I/O error.

Was forced to give it a 1 out of 5 but the drive is really rated a 0 out of 5.

Cons: I have never had an issue with a HDD more than I have had with this one. Spent several days trying to get it to initialize, to only get device I/O error after device I/O error. Had multiple techs look into the issue and they couldn't figure it out. We came to the conclussion that the drive was DOA so I RMA'ed it. Newegg is amazing with there return policies and I got a replacement drive within a week. Hoping everything was fixed, went to initialize and got device I/O error. Spent a day with a tech in trying to figure this out, and then out of no where, the device finally initialized. Started using it normally, and all was good for a day. This drive was going to house all of my steam games. After spending two days moving my steam games from multiple drives to this one, everything worked fine for about two days. After my PC did some updates, the device was no longer being seeing as formatted. Looked at the device manager and lone and behold I was asked to initialize the drive. Hoping to just restart the computer would fix this which it didn't. Lost 2 TB of games and save data due to this drive.

Overall Review: Plagued with unknown issues, I would not recommend this drive to anybody. I am running windows 10 pro. Motherboard is a Z390 Taichi Ultimate, with an i9, 2080 Ti, 32GB DD4 1333 RAM. My PC should be able to handle a 4 TB drive just fine, but this one just pushed me over the edge. Going to get two 2TB drives and hope to do some data recovery.

3.6tb usable 9/28/2020 6:26:04 AM

Pros: Not noisy so far it feels slightly faster at opening games compare to the old 1tb it replaced I do have a 32 gb optane on it for more cash

Cons: Only shows 3.6 Tb usable

Overall Review: It's to early to tell how good it truly is it. So far it thoes feel like it faster at loading than older stuff it replaced tnx to its much larger cash 256 mb vs the old 64 Al revise this review later on once I have more hours of use on it the hhd it replaced had 35000+ hours of run time

Works Fine. 9/22/2020 1:07:55 PM

Overall Review: I have two of these. If anyone says a HD is DOA make sure it is partitioned. It won't show up otherwise. My son's friend made this mistake on his computer before.

Arrived DOA, RMA'd and second was also DOA 9/4/2020 6:12:03 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Two DOA HDDs in a row, What are the odds.

Overall Review: No much more to say. Apparently it was a bad batch delivered to Newegg. I bought a third from a different vendor and I'm in business. Not Newegg's fault, but does go a long way to show you WD no longer QC's their HDDs.
